I’m glad you will keep the rabbits separate from now on until they are both fixed, because this is the safest way to begin proper bonding. If you have not already, I advise having your exotic vet see the Holland lop as well. There’s no guarantee the rabbit’s growth and development will match Toby’s, as every rabbit is different.

In regards to the young age, it’s always best to have a trustworthy vet help you, should you have a rabbit of young age, similar to what you did with Toby. While your experience with a young rabbit has been relatively smooth, remember that as forum browsers, many of BB users have read stories of young rabbits suffering due to early weaning, so while you have your experience your basing your judgements off of as well as those on your geographical area, other BB users are thinking of the number of unfortunate experiences they have come across in their own areas and online here on BB. It’s good to have people highlight all possible outcomes, and it’s responsible to keep all of those possibilities in mind, whether or not you think they are likely.

It’s very easy to get heated when it comes to the treatment of domestic animals, so when you see a lot of users echo the same opinion or recommendation, it means it may be something worth noting. I myself am guilty of getting quite aggressive about certain topics, but the aggression usually comes from a place of good intent.

If this topic continues, let’s be diligent in keeping it about the best ways to educate based on what events have already occurred, rather than advising on past events (i.e. purchasing a young rabbit).
